Capcom’s Street Fighter V online beta went live yesterday night, which gave players around the world a chance to fight online and help Capcom test the netcode. The beta ran into problems almost immediately after it launched and is now in a period of "extended maintenance." Capcom sent this statement to Siliconera regarding the beta’s status.
We apologize for the ongoing issues that users have been experiencing with the SFV beta test. In order to allow us to fix the issues as quickly as possible, we are going to initiate a period of extended maintenance, during which time the beta will be unavailable to all users. We will let you know the date on which the closed beta test will re-open once all problems have been fixed. We sincerely apologize for having to bring this unfortunate news to you. Thank you for your patience. Please stay tuned for further updates.
Street Fighter V is scheduled to come out next year for PlayStation 4 and PC.
